Extend gridlines first
Select an elevation or a section view:
Left-click a vertical gridline:
Move the cursor arrow to the small circle below the bubble of the gridline > Press left mouse button > Move mouse up:
Select the top level:
More than one level can be selected if copying of more than one level is desired.
The Modify | Grids ribbon will show up.
Left-click: Modify > Copy:
A dotted box will show up around the selected level:
Press left mouse button > Move mouse up:
Left-click the new level > storey height dimension box > Enter storey height:
The storey height should be the same as that of the floor to be duplicated.
Left-click the name of the new level > Change the name as appropriate:
Repeat for the next new level.
The storey height and the name of the level can be revised after adding each or all levels.
Create floor plan views
Left-click: View > Create:
Left-click: Plan Views > Floor Plan:
Newly added levels without views created yet will be listed.
Select one or levels to create views:
Press left mouse button > Move from top level to bottom right > Select the entire floor to be duplicated:
Press Ctrl-C to copy.
Left-click: Modify > Clipboard > Paste:
Left-click: Aligned to Selected Levels:
Select one or more levels where you would duplicate the selected floor:
Take care not to duplicate the same elements at the same level more than once.
The duplicated floors will show on the elevation.
Note in this example that the 1/F has not been created.The storey height of the 2/F has not been set to be equal to the storey height of the 1/F. This leaves a gap between the top of the duplicated floor and the level line above. This should actually be avoided.
